X-Plus today revealed the Large Monster Series Legion vinyl figure based on the 1996 film, Gamera 2: Attack of Legion (ガメラ2 レギオン襲来), one of the best kaiju films of the modern era.
Legion has a frightening set of jagged, insectoid appendages including four sets of legs, one pair of forearms with nasty pincers and a crown sporting ten claws. All of these are faithfully reproduced on the vinyl with impressive detail and loads of shadowy highlights.
There are some interactive options when posing this figure. The main head “pincers” can open and close. And the array of smaller claws behind the head are each individually poseable. Spread them out. Retract them. Or aim them in all directions like the jittery mandibles of real insect.
At nearly 15 inches tall, the Large Monster Series Legion is a monster of a figure. It towers 7 inches taller than its companion figure, the Large Monster Series Gamera 1996 which was released in June of 2015. It’s even 3 1/2 inches taller that the larger figures in the 30cm Series!
As for length… get this: it’s 22 1/2 inches long; almost two feet!
STANDARDS AND RICS
There will be both versions available. The Ric Boy exclusive edition will come with a light gimmick. As far as I can recall, the only options for lighting Legion are its blue eyes (red when angry) and the “nub” between his eyes which fires one of his energy weapons. But, is that really enough of a reason to dish out an additional $85? Hopefully, X-Plus has something more exciting up its sleeve.
The Large Monster Series Daiei Special Effects Edition Legion vinyl figure is yet another amazing achievement by X-Plus. It will surely be the ultimate, movie-accurate Legion collectible you can get. And it will make your collection shine!
(Please Note: X-Plus previously released a Legion vinyl many years ago. It’s smaller and nowhere near as detailed as this. If you go shopping for this new release, make sure you don’t get suckered into getting that older version because of shady product titles and descriptions!)

It’s been exactly twenty years since Legion first attacked movie theaters in 1996’s Gamera 2: Attack of Legion (ガメラ2 レギオン襲来). And X-Plus is right on cue with plans to bring this insectoid kaiju to vinyl on the film’s 20th anniversary.
X-Plus tweeted this photo of the upcoming Large Monster Series Legion vinyl figure on their table at Super Festival 71 held in Japan.
If you have the X-Plus Large Monster Series Gamera 1996 in your collection and he’s feeling lonely, be sure to tell him he’s due for some company.
